Korea and Myanmar: Different ways - Andray Abrahamian
Nordkorea and Myanmar (Burma) are the most enigmatic and tragical tales in Asia. Burma was threatened internally: rebel groups collided with the Burmese authorities and with each other. North Korea was external: an enemy super power - the United States - and a much more effective competitor - South Korea - occupies half of the Korea-Penninsula. In the course of the years Myanmar conquered its foes and gave it room to investigate a kind of democratisation and open-mindedness that has lead to re-integration into the world community.
Meanwhile, North Korea's regimes believe that its atomic weapons stockpile - the main cause for their paria state - is essential for the country's continued existence.

The BBC banned Burundi, VOA two weeks before the plebiscite.
His National Communications Council said it suspensioned the multinational audio-visual organisations for six month and accused them of violating the law and non-professional behaviour of the newsroom. The VOA was abandoned for transmission on a radio spectrum prohibited by the regulatory authority, according to the report. It also quoted the words of the declaration from Radio France Int'l and the radio Isanganiro, warning of a stricter review of the document.
"Our listeners rely on VOA to report factually, impartially and objectively on what is going on, so that this prohibition robs Burundi's people of a trustworthy news resource during a crucial period in this country," said VOA Director Amanda Bennett in a declaration. "This is in line with the suppression in Burundi as we approach the referendum," said Lewis Mudge, Researcher in the Africa Division at Human Rights Watch.
"The ban on two important information resources for the Burundians is a cause for concern. On May 17, the state is to organise a plebiscite to prolong the president's mandate from five to seven years. Should the measures be adopted, the 54-year-old President Pierre Nkurunziza could run again in 2020.
"The terms for conducting a trustworthy referendum have deteriorated over the course of the day..... the government is now frightened of the power of the mass media, which could destroy its plans for the forthcoming referenda and the 2020 elections," said Léonce Ngendakumana, vice-president of the FRODEBU parliamentary group, the Front for Democracy in Burundi.
The US State Department on Tuesday denounced the recent Burundian police crackdown and voiced concerns that the referendum could harm the country's institution. Almost 430,000 individuals, among them members of the ruling party opposed, have escaped from the Eastern African nations of 10.5 million persons since Nkurunziza won a third mandate in an elections in 2015, which resulted in atrocities.
